Reports, Policy Briefs, and Other Resources

In 2009, California eliminated most dental services for adults from its Medi-Cal program. As a result, many community members have experienced huge gaps in care and high costs for important dental procedures that result in physical and mental health issues, unemployment, and the furthering of health disparities.

The third edition of this report uses current data and research to examine health disparities across a broad spectrum of factors and social conditions. Throughout the report, the complex relationship between structural factors and health outcomes is discussed. The report also includes case studies, policy wins and policy recommendations.

This brief identifies the persistent oral health disparities impacting low-income, communities of color in California and pathways to improve oral health equity. 

This searchable database provides public health information for California's diverse population. Results on a variety of health topics are produced for the entire state and for most counties. The survey takes place every two years.
